Key study likely to be approved in Peru
The upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Peru may well approve a key strategic study, which is part of the Beijing Roadmap to the Free-Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific, or FTAAP. That’s according to Raul Salazar, a senior Peruvian official with the regional economic forum, in an interview with Xinhua. “We have the obligation to continue our central topic, which is the approval of the collective strategic study, which was required by the road map established in Beijing in 2014. It is hoped this year the leaders will approve the study as a step toward beginning negotiations for FTAAP,” he said.
